Pip with Buddy

Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! I'm glad to say the snow which was forecast for overnight didn't come !
This morning I'm showing another card I made with my new character, Pip. This time the image used is "Pip with Buddy"which you will find at A Passion for Stamps.
I've followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers and used 3 different textures (embossing, Sculpey dog,raised leaves) for the Crazy4Challenges theme this week.
Cupcake challenge....friends
Crafty Creations...cut it out and pop it up ( the leaves)

I absolutely LOVE these Sizzix leaves and have wanted the die for ages but couldn't get it anywhere and have run out of my leaf supply sent by friends! I was so happy to get this on ebay this week and 24 hours after I won the auction,the die was at my door! Now you're going to see them on everything!

The little dog at the bottom of the card was made with Sculpey which I haven't used for years. I found a little mould on the lid of a kids' toy and used it. I got some strange looks last night when I asked my husband not to let me forget I had a dog in the oven!

One more thing....The border down the edge of the embossing was made from the cut off from a fence die cut and while I was fiddling with it I realised that there are actually 5 different things I can make with this sad am I?

See you soon with more of my new digi images.
Dont' forget...
